Long road home...

The car was originally white.

I'll show you some of the superb* paintwork on it when it gets here.

At this time it needs a repaint. I'm thinking either a royal purple or candy apple red.

(That's obviously a ways down the road, I've got a lot of eBay/Classic Industries in my future, I think).

Looks fab. Love the colour. MOPAR engine bits are not particularly cheap.

True.....but suspension /brake parts are ludicrously so..........pair of A arms £130 delivered [within 4 days of ordering from the States.......]

Looks like I'm mostly going to be looking for random bodywork fittings, trim and interior. And a few interesting parts like the air-conditioning compressor, wiper motor, etc.

But I've yet to dig into it too far... But quite a lot is available aftermarket, these cars are fairly popular. Not as popular say as as mustang of the same era but they're still popular.

 

Just waiting for it to arrive.

Is it going back to standard spec, or going for the NASCAR look? Might be easier than trying to source endless "unobtainium" stuff......

This look is tempting.

I'm not sure yet.

for those curious on the NASCAR looking car you can find a few more details in this video here :) 

 

the youtube channel is worth having a look at if your into car based video game shenanigans, the survive the hunt series is particularly good :) (and other fun ones like the entire grid of stock 2CV's round the ring that I have posted before)

 

but back to @PhilA's I would vote to keep it stock, I particularly like the steelies it has with the wheels tucked quite far into the bodywork it really gives it that barge look which I like :) 

sorry to hear what happened with it and its previous keeper, but I am very much looking forward to seeing you sorting it out properly :)

However, I do like that color combination.

Nice!  Although even in that photo you can tell that the paintwork is perhaps not the best...

Threw a fan in because they caught a small amount of rain as they got near here and one side of the rear seat is a bit damp.
